My now wife didn’t even know who he was when we first met 😔. That should have been a red flag right there!

I was on a date once with a girl who grew up listening to soundtracks.   She knew damned near almost as much as me as we as we rattled off the old familiars such as Williams, Silvestri, Horn

I think the biggest red flag is if you mention you like film scores and they say “Oh! Like Hans Zimmer?”

All I want is a companion with whom I can talk about the minutia of unreleased music and the smallest differences between film versions and album versions.

 

I have that.  I'm just not sure after this many decades if she listens.

You’d be surprised... usually when I speak to people they’ll mention HZ and then I’ll say “What about JW?” and they’ll give me a blank look and I’ll say “Star Wars... Harry Potter”, and they’ll be like “Oh yeah, I didn’t know his name”.

I suppose that’s marginally better than getting the “I thought he was dead” reply. Which has happened with me at least twice that I can recall.

I use the same rule I would for anything in my life. As you get closer to someone you start to open up about things. But if I feel there’s nothing there as far as continuing a relationship,  then I’m not going to talk about my personal life too much.

 

Of course I haven’t dated in 20 years, I’m not allowed to.

Powell was my wingman. My first girlfriend was feeling out the HTTYD theme on the piano when I spotted it, pointed it out and we became inseparable for 2 years or so.

 

She was a massive Giacchino fan though. Perhaps I should have seen the signs of doom...

 
 

Pity, you should have kept her. My significant other was quite impressed with him when she met him.

I was chatting with an NY-based Trinidadian babe a few months ago who had the biggest SW junk collection I've ever seen (even covered in SW tattoos), so when I decided to show her my SW soundtracks, she found it bewildering why anyone would ever want to hear that music on its own, let alone on a "CD". I mean... didn't she like SW? That was really weird.

My advise. Don't talk about it on dates . Likely the person you like will think your a weirdo.

 

Well what good is she if you feel you have to conceal your taste in music or anything else you enjoy?

 

Some of you blokes here think women are all a bunch of philistines.

You could be misinterpreting. Maybe they just misunderstood that Schindler's List anecdote. :D

My now wife used to listen to “A New Hope and End Credits” years ago when she was younger(12-14ish I think)to help her fall asleep at night. She also used to be able to play the piano and she liked to play “Across the Stars”. Now when I’m showering I listen to my “Sanskrit Sacrifice” edit I made when I’m showering and she hates it. She says it’s “scary music” and I reply with “it is incredible that these are people using their vocal cords to create something so terrifyingly amazing.”

Isn't it obvious that mentioning a love for film music during a conversation flowing naturally into musical preferences is normal? While bringing up your hopes for a complete Star Wars Anthology 21 CD Box Set after she asks about your future plans might be awkward?

So now you basically hate each others guts?

The last person I dated had, miraculously, already seen JW live! Ugh she was a keeper wasn't she. Why am I just realizing this now.

 

Have you called her now?

Yes, but it didn't help. I'm going to focus on meeting someone new at one of the John Williams concerts this year. I plan on looking around to see which cute girls aren't laughing when he tells the Schindler story, because if someone isn't surprised to hear the punchline of that story, that's the mark of a true JWFan.
